Macallan introduces two new whiskies aged over 30 years

Nothing can quite compare to the flavour of a well-aged whisky and there seems to be no end to ultra-aged whisky from this single-malt distillery. Macallan is known to launch new luxury whiskies every few weeks, and the latest comes from the World Whiskey Society –  a company that offers rare and unique expressions from nearly every whiskey category from across the globe. So if you are a whiskey enthusiast looking to indulge in the finest blends on the market, look no further than the Macallan 31-year and 32-year-old.

The WWS Reserve Collection includes single cask bourbons and single malts that come housed in decanters that look more like mini cathedrals or a space magician’s wand. But the whiskey inside these bottles is the real appeal, and these two new Macallan single malts aged for more than three decades will appeal to any whiskey collector. The finely-aged whiskies are 31 and 32-year-old single malts respectively, that were sourced from this renowned Speyside distillery, both whiskies being from single casks.
The 31-year-old was aged in an Oloroso sherry cask, and there are just 71 bottles available. On sipping the whisky expect malt and cereal on the palate, with apple pie, Amaratti, and dark rye bread on the finish. This whiskey boasts a deep amber colour and with only a limited number of bottles produced each year, the Macallan 31 Year is a true connoisseur’s choice.

The 32 Year offers an even more refined taste experience. With a longer ageing process, this whiskey is imbued with a deep, mahogany colour and a smooth, velvety texture. It was aged in a refill hogshead barrel and the tasting notes are spicy with creaminess on the palate, notes of red apple, orange, milk chocolate, and some meadow flowers with a hint of smokiness on the finish.

The two newly launched Macallan whiskies by the World Whiskey Society will be released very soon with a heft price tag of approximately $10,000. In the meantime, you can browse the entire Macallan collection at ReserveBar if you can’t wait any longer for that sweet, sherry-cask-matured whisky.
